We are often stumped when we realise in the last minute that a dish calls for boiled potatoes. The thought of pressure cooking them and waiting for the steam to release is bound to put you off! Not to worry. Head to the Microwave , pop in a potato and voila, you will have them cooked within minutes.
- Place 2 whole large potatoes, with the skin, on the microwave turntable.
- Place a glass of water in the centre to prevent them from getting wrinkled. Microwave on high for 7 minutes or till cooked. Remove and peel.
- When cut into cubes it will yield 1½ cups.
- When mashed it will yield 1¼ cups.
